I always thought the wagons were good looking. I guess I've always liked two door wagons back to the Chevy Nomad.

Vega

We worked concerts with a guy named Ricky Vega. He was pretty tough and I saw him kick ass a few times. ;)

At that time, I was much happier with my '64 Riviera, much happier.

Vega's are great cars after a V-8 is swapped into them and they are turned into a dedicated racecar. The originals sometimes broke down before they could even be driven off the dealership lot.
